It is almost time for Ripple‘s annual SWELL conference. The yearly conference, described as the event that “brings together the world’s most trusted voices across financial services, payments, technology and policy to share the reality of what’s unfolding in global payments today“.
XRP investors have always been urged to keep their expectations grounded over the annual conference, and this year should be no different. SWELL is usually a time where a lot of deals and progress is made behind the scenes, with official announcements not coming out until months later. Ripple have always been known to have large numbers of NDA’s with their partners, and unlike the Justin Sun-like media hype of their projects, Brad Garlinghouse has always remained calm and collected when discussing Ripple’s partners and developments.
One of the most important aspects of the XRP ecosystem currently lies with the current traditional SWIFT system. Any positive news regarding XRP and SWIFT, would be embraced hugely. With xRapid volumes of XRP/MXN reaching new highs recently and XRP daily transaction numbers reaching 2018’s all-time highs, whatever happens at SWELL this year, will undoubtedly be reflected in due course.
